looks awesome... i think i would leave it shiny.... it would really compliment the work you've done. "thumbsup"

WOW!!!! I just found this , your work is that of a master !!!!!!!! I wow I have no real words how could you even think to build that out of flat sheets ! how many hours total in this ?

F-150Highlift 11-24-2008 05:02 PM

So far about 30 hours total give or take a few. Once the body has all the paint work done, I am going to have to think about where it goes from there, shiney or weathered. That is why I used red oxide primer in case I take some off.

outstanding. The paint job looks amazing. Thanks for sharing the pics

motorman1600 11-25-2008 10:43 PM

Your skills are amazing. What type of paint are you using?

F-150Highlift 11-26-2008 06:57 PM

paint has been all krylon for Home Depot. This is some shots that I took today, still have alot more detail work to do but It's almost there. Still can't decide on what finish to leave the body. Any input??

that looks pretty glossy for rattle can paint. nice colors. I would vote for new, not weathered...

OlYelr 11-26-2008 10:26 PM

I vote weathered. "thumbsup"

Inclodneato 11-26-2008 10:36 PM

weathered! c`mon its a willys crawler gotta be weathered. ive been watching this build for awhile and i must say that is sooooo nice excellent craftsmanship and kudos to you sir!! "thumbsup"

ElChupoCabre 11-27-2008 12:55 AM

another vote for weathered................. "thumbsup"

scale808 11-27-2008 02:15 AM

"thumbsup"weathered is the only way a willy's should have been....i would have left it the primer red and i would have added rust spots....but thats only me...ALOHA!"thumbsup"

51WillysJeep 11-27-2008 07:38 AM

Awesome paint choice..!! My opinion... I'd say weather it, BUT don't go crazy doing it... slight rust here and there, and some of the paint beginning to "wear" away... ( possibly exposing some of that oxide primer...:lol:) that would look KILLER..!!! Sweet build man..!"thumbsup"

F-150Highlift 11-27-2008 11:14 AM

Yeah I like the weathere look too so it will stay this way for maybe the next week, I'm getting some scale accessories for it and will start aging it next weekend. I am not going to go overboard but primer coming through is a must, especially on the roof.

mild weathering.
any possibility of lowering the body a bit? looks a little suspensiony to me.
gorgeous truck.

rcjeepbuilder 11-27-2008 08:02 PM

Weather that beast for sure!!!! Looks killer man You should be proud..

karlos 11-28-2008 11:27 AM

I like the restored look better. That's just too purdy to weather! What are you going to do for bumpers?

F-150Highlift 11-28-2008 11:55 AM

Yeah I am playing with some suspension ideas to try and lower it. I have been thinking of simple bumpers for it, maybe just round tube? I do like the western bumpers but would need to make them from steel.

Absolutely awesome work.
I'm sure you have thought of this, but my vote would be go for the authentic look,
swap the springs for under sprung (axle over), just like the real willy's. Looks great so far.
